BALTIMORE, MD — You have the chance to create something that will last decades.
All you have to think of is a name.
The Maryland Zoo is letting you pick the name of one of their two new southern white rhinos.
But they're doing it as a raffle.
Each ticket costs 100 dollars, with the winner getting to pick the rhino’s name as well as getting a private barn tour where they will get to meet the rhino they are naming.
The money helps cover the zoo’s operating expenses for the rhinos.
- Food: $36/day
- Enrichment: $150-700+/item
- Animal care team: $170-250/day
- Medical exams: $500+/year
As for raffle rules, the zoo said they reserve the right to veto any name picked.
The contest runs until June 2.
